This, too, is a rather tough-to-judge match for me.

The monochromatic palette in Nord's entry is very effective, a very fine tightrope act in colour use. Great metallics, too.

Benbow's entry is more lively, but still very well-consolidated, and the attention to detail in the staging of the photo is a delight.

Both entries immerse me in their respective atmospheres. On that count, I'm more fond of the "African adventures" atmosphere than the "Newhammer 40K" one, and I might just have to let that be the tie-breaker for me, subjectively.

Whoa, overlooked that one.  :o

Indeed a tough decision.

Nord, Your metallics are stunning, as usual. Are these the new techies from Mars in 40k?


Admiral, might I ask, how the plants were made? Selfmade? Looks like a piece of wire glued into two sheets of paper, then scissored?

Exactly, that's the way they were done! Ordinary copy paper, paper clips or cheap wire, some glue and some paint. Easy work when watching TV ...
